Last night I watched the Oscars with my hubby and some fabulous friends of ours at The Soho House in Toronto. It was bittersweet – the highlight of the Hollywood awards season also marks the end of the glam red carpet fashion for a little while. Did the celebs save the best for last?
Voluminous bridal style ball gowns, opulent embellishments, striking beauty and dripping diamonds – the A-list brought their A-game to the Oscars and I loved every minute of it!
Best Dressed: Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture
She finally kicked the pneumonia and she’s radiant! Not that she ever looked bad, but she was absolute perfection last night. Jennifer’s spring 2013 Dior Haute Couture gown takes the fit and flare to epic Oscar proportions with a strapless fitted bodice and an ultra voluminous skirt. The softly rounded bust line fits her to perfection without digging in like many strapless gowns have an unflattering tendency to do. The fabric is luxuriously dreamy with a subtle floral texture in the palest pink colour that accentuated her flawless complexion and statuesque figure.
Jennifer accessorized with simple yet dazzling Chopard jewels and a gorgeous Judith Leiber clutch. I LOVE the long necklace worn backwards – such an eye-catching and trendsetting move! She kept her beauty simple with a textured, sun-kissed updo, soft grey smoky eyes and pale pink lips – it reminded me of the look I went for on my wedding day so of course I loved it!
She was the belle of the ball and I’m so happy that she won the Oscar for her incredible role in Silver Linings Playbook! I love her relaxed approach to Hollywood – the press room interview is hilarious and she handled the fall on stage with grace and humour. To the reporter who asked if she was “peaking” at 22 – I don’t think so!
